adjusted it this morning, the DW364 can adjust from the back pivot ball hinge.
Dunno if it strains the front though but I got it parallel.
However upon checking the squareness there is a slight difference from front to back.
the back is about maybe 1/2 degree off compared to the front.

It is cutting very close to perfect now though.

I clamp a fence and run the saw alongside it but with angled cuts the blade always tends to flex and wander ever so slightly.

Also cutting a piece of wood with 45 on both sides is difficult as I have to flip it over and end falling piece is the desired piece.
Why not?
